The King Valley Challenge involves a 15km run, 12km Kayak, 39km Cycle and 3.6km run to finish.
There is also a 3 and 6km run/walk that starts at the same time, this is perfect for those not ready for the full 15km run and it's a fundraiser for the King Valley Football and Netball Club.
We start the event at 10:30am at Lake William Hovell, this will give time to travel from Melbourne or enjoy a leisurely start to the day. The run starts near the boat ramp and follows the rugged 4WD track alongside the lake and then the King River into the Alpine National Park, returning via the same route. You then paddle three laps of the lake, surrounded by the mountains with only your fellow kayakers on the lake. The ride takes you along the King River down from the lake, you turn left at Cheshunt, left at Whitfield and then climb up towards Powers Lookout. To finish you have a short run on the gravel track for a magical view of the mighty King Valley and the spoils of conquering the Valley.
